Adventure Summer Camp

An exhilarating wilderness adventure awaits you at Adventure Summer Camp at Pinnacle Falls! Enjoy rock climbing, canoeing, mountain biking, whitewater rafting and more—all in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North and South Carolina. Situated on 100 acres in the Eastatoe Valley of Pickens County, S.C., Pinnacle Falls Camp serves as the center for activities.

Choose from a six- or 10-day program designed for ages 12-15. With a focus on fun and adventure, campers learn wilderness safety and the importance of teamwork while gaining self-confidence and a sense of responsibility. No experience necessary, but program activities are best suited for physically active youth who are committed to spending time away from home in a wilderness setting.

Adventure Summer Camp at Pinnacle Falls is offered through a partnership with Clemson University’s Youth Learning Institute and The Cliffs Communities, a property developer with a philosophy of wellness, service and respect for nature, and a commitment to promoting the health and well being of young people.
